Associate Director & Medical Negligence Solicitor
Having spent many years in the medical profession as a doctor, I changed my career to become a Solicitor, joining Oliver & Co Solicitors in 2007, before becoming a Partner in 2009. My role is to head the Clinical Negligence Team as well as manage my own files, which I greatly enjoy.
I qualified as a doctor in 1995 and started my basic surgical training in 1997. As part of this surgical training, I worked in various areas of medicine including orthopaedic surgery, urology, general surgery, vascular surgery and accident and emergency medicine. I also obtained my Advanced Trauma Life Support qualification, which I greatly enjoyed.
I qualified as a basic surgeon, becoming a Surgical Member of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, in 2001.
Having always had an interest in the law, I decided to obtain a law degree and I qualified as a solicitor in 2005, specialising in medical negligence claims.
As one of the few Solicitors in the country who is also a qualified doctor, my expertise helps me provide my clients with the best possible advice throughout the lifetime of their claim. Generally speaking, I aim to provide a friendly and efficient service, keeping my clients informed throughout by way of regular contact and by remaining approachable at all times. I am involved in a wide range of cases including:
- Surgical failures and injuries
- Missed or delayed diagnoses (of fractures, cancers and other illnesses)
- Birth injuries (such as cerebral palsy)
- Failed dental treatment and injuries
